 Long-range propagation of ultrafast ionizing laser pulses in a resonant nonlinear medium / Demeter, G. (Wigner RCP, Budapest) ; Moody, J.T. (Munich, Max Planck Inst.) ; Aladi, M. (Wigner RCP, Budapest) ; Bachmann, A.-M. (Munich, Max Planck Inst.) ; Batsch, F. (Munich, Max Planck Inst.) ; Braunmüller, F. (Munich, Max Planck Inst.) ; Djotyan, G.P. (Wigner RCP, Budapest) ; Fedosseev, V. (CERN) ; Friebel, F. (CERN) ; Gessner, S. et al. We study the propagation of 0.05-1 TW power, ultrafast laser pulses in a 10 meter long rubidium vapor cell. The central wavelength of the laser is resonant with the $D_2$ line of rubidium and the peak intensity in the $10^{12}-10^{14} ~W/cm^2$ range, enough to create a plasma channel with single electron ionization [...] arXiv:2103.14530.- 2021-09-07 - 13 p. - Published in : Phys.

 Characterization of ALPIDE silicon sensors with inclined tracks / Kushpil, Svetlana (Rez, Nucl. Phys. Inst.) /ALICE Collaboration The upgrade of the ALICE Inner Tracking System (ITS) aims at improving the capabilities of ALICE in terms of read-out rate as well as track pointing resolution and track finding efficiency, especially for particleswith low transverse momenta. The new ITS will be a low material budget detector with high granularity and read-out speed.

 Higgs boson experimental overview for ICHEP 2020 / Palmer, Christopher (Princeton U.) /ATLAS Collaboration ; CMS Collaboration Measurements of the kinematic properties of the Higgs boson with proton--proton collision data at $\sqrt{s}=$13 TeV collected by the ATLAS and CMS detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) during Run 2 (2015-2018) are summarized. Many measurements are reported with full LHC Run 2 luminosity of approximately 140 $\mathrm{fb}^{-1}$-- including the Higgs boson to two photons channel from both experiments.

 Sympathetic cooling of a trapped proton mediated by an LC circuit / BASE Collaboration Efficient cooling of trapped charged particles is essential to many fundamental physics experiments, to high-precision metrology and to quantum technology. Until now, sympathetic cooling has required close-range Coulomb interactions, but there has been a sustained desire to bring laser-cooling techniques to particles in macroscopically separated traps, extending quantum control techniques to previously inaccessible particles such as highly charged ions, molecular ions and antimatter.

 Ca$_3$Mn$_2$O$_7$ structural path unraveled by atomic-scale properties: A combined experimental and ab initio study / Rocha-Rodrigues, P (Porto U.) ; Santos, S S M (Porto U.) ; Miranda, I P (Sao Paulo U.) ; Oliveira, G N P (Porto U.) ; Correia, J G (Lisbon, IST) ; Assali, L V C (Sao Paulo U.) ; Petrilli, H M (Sao Paulo U.) ; Araújo, J P (Porto U.) ; Lopes, A M L (Porto U.) The structural phase transition path from the low-temperature polar structure up to the highest symmetric phase in the hybrid improper ferroelectric Ca$_3$Mn$_2$O$_7$ compound is here investigated at atomic scale. Measurements using the perturbed angular correlation local probe technique are combined with ab initio electronic structure calculations to observe the evolution of the electric field gradient parameters at the Ca site within the 10–1200 K temperature range.

 Ca$_2$MnO$_4$ structural path: Following the negative thermal expansion at the local scale / Rocha-Rodrigues, Pedro (Porto U.) ; Santos, Samuel S M (Porto U.) ; Oliveira, Gonçalo N P (Porto U.) ; Leal, Tiago (Porto U.) ; Miranda, Ivan P (Sao Paulo U.) ; dos Santos, António M (ORNL, Oak Ridge (main)) ; Correia, João G (Lisbon, IST) ; Assali, Lucy V C (Sao Paulo U.) ; Petrilli, Helena M (Sao Paulo U.) ; Araújo, João P (Porto U.) et al. The oxygen octahedral rotations in Ca$_2$MnO$_4$, the first member of the $\textrm{Ca O ( CaMnO}_3)_n$ Ruddlesden-Popper family, is probed through a set of complementary techniques, including temperature-dependent neutron and x-ray diffraction, combined with local probe studies and ab initio calculations. Here we demonstrate the enhancement of the uniaxial negative thermal expansion coefficient from $-1.26 \pm 0.25$ to $-21 \pm 1.8$ ppm/K at the second order $I4_1/acd$ to $I4/mmm$ structural phase transition, providing direct evidence for the corkscrew atomic mechanism.

 Evidence of a sudden increase in the nuclear size of proton-rich silver-96 / Reponen, M (Jyvaskyla U.) ; de Groote, R P (Jyvaskyla U.) ; Al Ayoubi, L (Jyvaskyla U. ; IJCLab, Orsay) ; Beliuskina, O (Jyvaskyla U.) ; Bissell, M L (Manchester U.) ; Campbell, P (Manchester U.) ; Cañete, L (Surrey U.) ; Cheal, B (Liverpool U.) ; Chrysalidis, K (CERN) ; Delafosse, C (Jyvaskyla U. ; IJCLab, Orsay) et al. Understanding the evolution of the nuclear charge radius is one of the long-standing challenges for nuclear theory. Recently, density functional theory calculations utilizing Fayans functionals have successfully reproduced the charge radii of a variety of exotic isotopes.
